Grout drying on the edges of tiles - any way to remove?

I have an annoying problem. I've grouted the new bathroom and in many areas I've obviously not done something right.

It seems the sponge has taken some grout and left residue on the edges of the tiles.

It's not like the haze, a microfibre doesn't touch it but it's also not particularly raised.

I'm probably just going to have to grin and bear it as white vinegar, scotch brite pads and even wet and dry paper don't do much. Actually the wet and dry does work but they're probably not a good idea on the glaze of the ceramic tile.

Any other solutions? Thanks

Methylated spirit on a white cloth, a coloured cloth might stain the grout.
Thanks, I currently have shades of green and blue haha.

:cry: oh dear I guess that's the colour of the Microfibre cloth! I meant to add that the best stuff to use is Terry toweling, an old white face flannel or towel, it has a similar surface to microfibre and works really well with the methylated.
